Devices and Interfaces Tab Is Missing from NI MAX

Software

  • Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX)

Driver

  • NI-DAQmx

Issue Details

I am trying to locate my device in NI MAX, however the entire Devices and Interfaces tab is missing. 

Solution

This will occur if you have no hardware drivers installed. Without the corresponding drivers, MAX cannot identify connected hardware. 

If you are using a National Instruments data acquisition product, you will need NI-DAQmx to communicate with your device. Download the most recent version here.
